E .C.O. Recipe
Our tried and tested favourites
This is a great substitute for buying cows milk or dairy free milk in a packet. The BBC have said that producing a glass of dairy milk every day for a year requires 650 sq metres of land which is more than 10 times as much as the same amount of oat milk!
This recipe is simple to make, only requires three ingredients and a muslin cloth or nut bag, but requires a little time to strain. The ratio is 1 part oats to 4 parts water so you can scale the recipe up or down depending on your milk usage.
150g rolled oats
1/2 tsp vanilla essence or one date as a sweetener (optional)
- Place the oats and water in a blender, with date if using, and blend for 30 seconds
- If the oats look broken down then continue to the next step, if not blend for up to 30 seconds longer
- Place a muslin cloth above a jug and slowly pour 1/4 of the liquid onto the cloth
- Allow the milk to drip through or if using a nut bag then squeeze the liquid through the bag
- Between each quarter scrape away the oat residue left on the muslin/bottom of the bag
- Once completely strained pour into a bottle, add the vanilla essence if using, and refrigerate
At E.C.O. we all drink dairy free milk in its various forms because of its impact on animals and the environment.
